Early, Margaret
TESL Talk, v20 n1 p111-25 1990
Reports an exploratory study on the acquisition of one type of nonnarrative writing by 10 fifth grade beginning English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL) students, including a description of 6 lessons leading up to the writing. The findings support the position that young children learning ESL can cope with linguistic and cognitive demands of nonnarrative discourse. (24 references) (Author/LB)
